You know adam scott from "parks and recreation." But his only recreation in "the secret life of walter mitty" seems to be torturing ben stiller. You can't take my duck. It's mine. Give it to me. Stop fiddling with sweet and little men. I'm trying to do my job. are you the tin man? Picture. So good. And here, we want to give you stretch armstrong. Merry christmas.
